So Britten wrote for harpsichord. Who knew?

Mahan Esfahani did.
It appears Britten made a harpsichord arrangement of the William Lawes song ‘She Weepeth Sore in the Night’ for an unknown soloist in 1948. The manuscript is in the Britten catalogue but has not been played in 68 years.

The composer Colin Mathews made a quick copy of it for Mahan to play last night in San Francisco.

  • Last night I walked out of San Francisco recital of talanted self promoter Mahan Esfahani. Inferior keyboard player with awful choice of contemporary music. There who stayed just report disgust and suffering.
